Leicester rockers Kasabian brought good feelings back to the Austrian crowd after an earlier storm forced everyone to take cover and Elbow to halt their set temporarily.

The band performed material from forthcoming album Velociraptor!, including the TV-theme style title track and a thunderous ‘Days Are Forgotten‘.

However it was oldie ‘LSF‘ – dedicated to Elbow – that prompted the best response of the night. A surprise cover of ‘Misirlou‘ ended with Tom Meighan declaring “Fuck me, wow. Everybody say fuck me!“.

After traditional set closer ‘Fire‘, it was evident to all that Kasabian can devastate a festival more than mere elements.

Elbow had to put a halt to their set earlier as extreme weather conditions hit FM4 Frequency 2011. When thunderstorms came on strong the band left stage mid-song returning for a rendition of ‘One Day Like This‘ with frontman Guy Garvey joking, “You can’t pay for lighting effects like these.
